Just for fun; top 11 love songs

Since the weekend is coming, let's follow Elspeth's lead and come up with some good love songs for people to enjoy as they come home to their families. 

#11.  Aba Daba Honeymoon, Donovan, sung by Reynolds and Carpenter.

#10.  Good night, The Beatles (you'll have to buy the White Album to get this's worth the money, especially for their tribute to the Beach Boys)

#9.  Honeysuckle Rose, Waller. Yes, I know this is Satchmo and not Fats, but he just drew a bead on the song in this recording.

#8.  You say it best when you say nothing at all, Overstreet, sung by Alison Krauss.  Keith Whitley's version is good, too.

#7. Home Sweet Home, Motley Crue.  The granddaddy of heavy metal power ballads. 

#6.  My Girl, The Temptations.  Why doesn't Mrs. Bubba let me get one of those sleek purple tuxes?

#5.  By the Light of the Silvery Moon, Edwards.  Just don't get caught by your dream man without a corset!

#4.  No one like you, Scorpions.  Thankfully most business trips are not to death row on Alcatraz.

#3.  All the fun, Overstreet.  Love in ordinary life and repentance from the "fun" of the world.

#2.  O Sole Mio, traditional rendered by Capurro, rendered by Pavarotti. 

#1.  Papageno, Mozart.  Malachi 2:15, just with credit given to the wrong One.
